Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture Park

Sculpture fans! If you’d like to treat yourself to a visual feast, make your way to Murrells Inlet, SC to visit Brookgreen Gardens.
I just completed teaching a five day workshop at this world class venue. The folks here could not be more kind and gracious.
One of the students in the class, took the time to write a little note to me afterwards. He’s allowed me to share that statement publicly:
Thanks again for presenting such an informative and exciting workshop (a mini mentorship, really). This sculpture workshop empowered me to try creating pieces of “real” art on my own, and not just left feeling overwhelmed by all the technical aspects of achieving accurate representations of subject matter. All good instructors encourage seeing beyond the fundamentals, and you’ve successfully taught how to create strong pieces of fine sculpture using principles of good creative design.
I still have quite a ways to go on the technical side, and will be committing much more time studying anatomy and making sure to measure throughout my piece, but more importantly, I feel I’ve acquired an essential insight into sculptural composition that will drive my work to completion with a higher purpose to achieve aesthetically superior work.”
